When To Visit
Grenada like the rest of the Caribbean is a Tropical Island, which means that Grenada experiences 2 seasons ( Rainy and Dry Season). Daylight hours don't vary greatly throughout the year. So Really anytime is a great time to visit Grenada.
MyCaribSpot recommends the months from February through June, during these months the seas are the calmest and you will avoid the height of the hurricane season. These are the dryer and hotter months of the year so remember to stay well hydrated.

Among the pleasant walks at Levera is a trail that circles the 45 acre pond.
